About this item No flaking, no build-up- get maximum hold without worry about embarrassing flakes and icky build-up! unlike several edge controllers on the market, our unique formula will not flake or cause build-up, or turn white when applied to the hair. Also, sleek max provides a hold that will last hours–not seconds–to help your style last all day Great hold to last all day- stop your edges from going on strike when you walk out the door by creating smooth sleek styles that stay in place for hours using our strongest edge tamer. Can be used on wet or dry hair. Get the most from your sleek max edge tamer by keeping it sealed due to the special ingredients used to retain moisture and maintain hold. Made in the U.S.A Used on straight and curly textures- ideal for medium to coarse textures and all hair types. Whether you are naturally or chemically straight, or naturally curly, our edge control was formulated to give you hold wherever you need it most Adds moisture & shine- unlike other edge controls, this clear gel makes it easy to transition from one style to the next without the need to wash your hair. Other edge controls can cause breakage from drying out the hair. Who wants that? instead, choose a hold that adds moisture and luster for a polished look to every style Versatile usage- perfect for smoothing and enhancing hair edges or tapered cuts, creating texture on short spiked styles or ponytails, or taming unruly hair when braiding and creating up-dos. Ideal for medium to coarse textures, but can also be used as an aid to prevent straight hair from slipping when creating textured looks

    This small jar of holding gel is small in size but mighty and powerful. My edges are so laid after I use this product. I love it. Before I put this gel on, my hair are in tight coils around my edges, but once I lay that gel on my edges, it’s like a miracle in a jar!!! and I have started having a lot of gray edges which is worse than your normal edges! it’ so hard to lay gray hair down, period!!!! I REALLY REALLY WISHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHED there was a LARGER JAR of this product, but i’ll take the small jar. I used to buy KeraCare edge tamer, because it’ is really good for hard to hold down edges, but it costs more, this product is less and works better, and i’m really glad, it’s not that greasy and not hard to wash out of hair at the end of the week. Thank you. Purchase it, you won’t be disappointed and guess what? You don’t need a whole lot for those rough edges. Use a good bristle brush and a rat-tail comb to get those edges super smooth and straight. Good luck, I love this <3

    I used to swear by Crew Heavy Hold but then found Eco Styler Gel! Unfortunately, it left my Crew defective…no matter how much Crew I applied, I might as well have packed on air to my edges! I wanted to keep the Eco, so I had to try and find a new edge control. And this one is the first that I have come across that works with it! Accentuates my natural waves with the Eco, while taming my edges. Plus it smells AMAZING!!!My hair is a 3C/4A mix.Downside? Might have to touch up with a lil more product near the evening, if you’re goin out.Other than that, I love this product! Will definitely buy again!!! ^_^

    This works so well at keeping my edges down! I’m natural, so it’s hard to find something that works for me and when I do I stick with it. I had been using Olive Oil Edge Control, and it worked okay but I went to the salon and she used this and I love it. I put some on yesterday before work and used my scarf to hold it down for about 15 minutes. It lasted all day yesterday and I didn’t need to use any more when I got up to go to work today. Unless I find something even better this is what I’ll be using from now on!

    I’m natural with a short pixie cute, my hair is naturally curly so if I’m hot, sweat, or in a humid place this is the only product that has really held for me. I would say it’ll last about 8 hours per day. I wear my hair straighten, flat ironed so I need this for my edges to keep them as slick as possible. This little bottle has lasted me abt 6 months if not more. I love it and my beautician introduced me to this hair line. All their products are great!!

    I have been using this product for years and I am never disappointed by the results. I usually use a small amount on my edges as I style my hair for a sleek finish. Using a small amount helps with eliminating build-up and a white residue. The product usually last for about 6 to 7 hours without reapplication. Highly recommend! You will not be disappointed!

    Edge control is hard for me to find that works on my curly hair. This is definitely my new favorite.My edges stay down for the most part for the day, even without me laying them down. They do come up a little if I do not lay them down BUT the swoop shape is still there. Thats a win for me. As long as I lay a scarf, ITS SET

    The smell is soft a very lovely. The smell is soft enough to not over power my cologne. Other than that this product I have used for a few years and I wont change unless DE can find a way to improve thos one. But I dont see it. It doesn’t make your hair greasy, hard or wet. You only need a little bit to go a very long way. You will be glad you tried it.

    This is an excellent edge control with shine. I have ordered this product before but straight from the manufacturer. The product hold greatly and smells awesome.

    I got this product for my daughter who has lots of “baby hairs” that show when we pull her hair back into a pony tail. We have always just used hair spray or even a little gel. She is now on a competition dance team and we needed something we could use that wouldn’t leave her hair flaky or crunchy. This product works great. We use a toothbrush with it, a little goes a long way with her hair.
